Life-size stories : You just purchased another Kerem Görsev CD. Or maybe you are going to hear him for the first time in your life. But in both cases,you will eventually feel like “You have listened to him before”! Kerem plays the way you like. Not because he wants to please every soul, simply that he wants to play this way…
“Relaxing” is his fourth album. On this CD, he plays some standards as well. Standards are evergreen compositions. Kerem came a long way. He played standards for long years and long nights…
Jazz clubs are esoteric. Bandstand is the only place where musicians interact and interplay. Long jazz club years ripen musicians. So did Kerem. This time he took some standards between his own compositions which became so close throughout these long club years . A tribute ? Not quite because Kerem’s club years never ceased. Jazz musicians can’t live without that atmospher.
Kerem is a romantic. On every composition, he is getting more sentimental. But this romanticism is not acquired. It is distilled throughout all those years. Kerem Görsev never gives up and h deserves the rewards.
Eriv Revis and Bob Demeo are close enough to Kerem. They are musicians of our time. Accomplished, skillful and sensible. Eric Revis is a member of the very competitive young U.S. bass players’ circuit. This album didn’t suprise me. It is what I expected, but Kerem Görsev, playing stories form his own life, everytime creates surprises to please his listeners.
